ADB-DutchCham in cooperation with our Dutch Drinks community have the honour of welcoming the entire Dutch Community (members and non-members) in joining us to celebrating King’s Night 2021. We have a big night planned with drinks, bites and music! We can assure you this will be an evening you won’t forget! Last year we celebrated the King’s birthday very successful via Zoom, but this year we will celebrate in person at someone’s house.
An invitation to someone’s house? How does that work?
This might seem presumptuous of us to invite you at somebody else’s home, but it’s true! All guests are invited to open up their house and be a host. Or if you prefer to go to someone else’s house, you are more than welcome to sign up as guest.
What can I expect?
This evening we will bring the entire Dutch community together (+8 guests per house) to catch up with friends, meet new members and non-members, enjoy the high-quality and notoriously tasty snacks and enjoy delicious drinks. We will provide each table with a F&B package including food (‘bitterballen’ & snacks), drinks and orange decorations for each house. This event will take place after dinner and will start at 8.00pm.
During the entire evening we will be live-streaming a DJ trio from The Netherlands, who will connect with all other groups via zoom during the evening. All guests will have the opportunity to send music requests via zoom chat and via a special whatsapp line, so you and your group can dance the night away!
When registering you can select whether you would like to be a host or a guest. Next to that you will also be asked whether you will join with a group or if you prefer to join on your own (or with your partner). In the last case we will surprise you with an invite to someone’s house**. If you already have a selected group, please let us know (via the sign-up form) their full names so we know who you would like to celebrate King’s Night with. Please note that all guests & hosts must buy their own personal ticket.
8.00 pm Arrival of guests

What does it mean to be a host?
Without hosts there would be no Kings Night celebration in Singapore. We need your hospitality to open up your house.
Just to be sure: a host opens up their home, not their fridge and/or liquor cabinet. We have made sure that it won’t be necessary with all the sponsored drinks & snacks, but in case you want to be prepared, the host may ask their guests to bring their favourite snack or drink. Via a whatsapp group with all guests you can communicate your preferences. We also advise the hosts to communicate any extra costs that have been/or will be made with the guests. This way there will be no unclarity.
What does it mean to be a guest?
As a guest you will be invited to someone’s home. This could be someone you know or not know (yet). We have done our very best to provide every group with a full table filled with delicious F&B, but you may also bring your favourite snack(s). All details about whether bringing extra snacks and drinks are necessary, will be updated with you by your host. The host will communicate with his/her guests on beforehand and you can discuss any other options.
Dress code: ‘Oranje Boven’
To give this jolly evening a special touch we would like to ask you to wear all the orange items you have at home. Let’s make it an Orange feast!
Do you have fun games at home? Please bring them to the table. Think about 30 Seconds, Wie ben ik, Twister. Something that adds a good laugh to the evening. Or you could always bring your dancing shoes and dance the night away!
We would like to thank Tanglin, ChinChin & Gain Brands International for supplying the drinks and HEINEKEN for the beer. On top of that Ferry’s Snack is taking care of the delicious bitterballen.
All the above F&B is included in the ticket price. Ticket price is SGD30 per person. Just like theatre tickets, we do not give any ticket refunds.
For the special occasion of King’s Night 2021 ADB-DutchCham is honoured to invite non-members to one of our big social events to let them get acquainted with our organisation. For our non-members we have a welcoming special price to become a member. If you’re considering an ADB-DutchCham membership and your spouse is not a member yet, you could consider our Couples Membership.
King’s Night 2021 would not be possible without our sponsors:
*Given the fact that the F&B package is for ten persons it’s up to ADB-DutchCham to top up the tables to 8 guests per house.
**We try our upmost best to accommodate everybody’s wishes. ADB-DutchCham reserves the rights to form the groups in order to make sure there is a spot for all sign ups.
